Funded from a chain of charity shops throughout Ireland, Drop Inn presently works alongside churches and pastors in Africa, Eastern and Central Europe, India, Cambodia, Venezuela, Brazil and Haiti.

They provide support in 18 different countries around the world including Ireland. Much of the work undertaken in these countries is with families, widows and orphans.

They give help to feeding programs, orphanages and rehabilitation centres, schools and to a Children’s Hospital in Minsk, Belarus.

Every year, just before Christmas, they also send out shoeboxes filled with special items to be distributed to needy children and adults and in 2011 over 8000 were transported to Belarus and Ukraine.

It is into these countries and our other projects that Drop Inn Ministries is really ‘Making a Difference’ in the lives of thousands of children, widows and families and it is just a part of the work that Drop Inn Ministries does and continues to do.

Through the income of the shops and the generosity of people, even in times of financial hardship we have been able to continue Bringing Hope, Help and Healing, practical and spiritual aid, to people who are in such desperate need right across the world, people who depend entirely on our Ministry.
